It’s a week away from Chinese New Year and it’s that time again where you’ll be seeing red more than the rest of the year. Why red is so popular in China, especially on Chinese New Year? Legend has it that it all began with the Nian, a ferocious beast that would terrorize villagers on the New Year, eating crops, livestock, and even children. But villagers learned that this half bull with a lion head was afraid of three things: fire, noise, and the colour red. Nian was defeated, and from then on, the colour red was considered to bring good luck and good fortune to all.
In terms of beauty, red is not an easy colour to pull off. Yet the legendary colour always has its appeal—especially red lipsticks! By putting on the right red-toned make-up, it will brighten your whole look, and it complements a natural eye make-up look.
A good red lipstick is always interesting to put on either for day or night. And we just found a great red lipstick that feels comfortable on the lips, with a red shade that pays off! It’s the Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Liquid Rouge Shine and Lipstick Cashmere, both in 103 Legend shade. Coincide with Chinese New Year, Clé de Peau Beauté also celebrates the 10th anniversary of 103 legend, a neutral-toned boldness, a true red, and the brand’s most iconic shades that inspired by the classic red rose.
Known for unlocking the power of your radiance, Clé de Peau Beauté’s Lipstick Cashmere and Liquid Rouge Shine are designed to deliver bold colours with a soft, elegant radiance.
With a bright China shade of 103 Legend, this matte finish lipstick has a cashmere texture that feels lightweight and glides on your lips smoothly. Nothing beats that secure feeling of putting on a red lipstick that feels light on your lips. It lifts your confidence to wear the red coloured lipstick, even with a red shade as true as 103 Legend.
LIQUID ROUGE SHINE
I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wanted to pull off that shiny red colour on the lips. Especially when I have a special occasion, I want to feel good in a simple make-up, but it’s also essential to put on the best lip shade and that glossy texture to feel a bit extra!
With only one stroke, the Liquid Rouge Shine in 103 Legend shade already set on my lips comfortably. As I have an olive with a warm undertone skin, the 103 Legend shade is quite bright. But thanks to its lacquer-colour like, it covers the lips real good. And it also gives me an extra confidence to wear it thanks to its Glossy Color Powder that creates elegant shine! The lips appear vibrant and contoured.
One of the basic issues of not able to wear a great lipstick shade is chappy lips. The new Lip Glorifier from Clé de Peau Beauté will help to condition your lips with its Glow-up Oil Base. It is a three-part innovation made up of colour components and luminous oil, helping your lips appear plump and soft.
It has a tint colour that enhances your lips’ natural shade. I use it as a base lipstick, so I wait for it to set in for a while before I apply the desired lipstick. The lips instantly felt smooth and soft. Plus, it has that shimmery glow finish, so if your lips are already healthy, you can wear it as is and it will look great for that extra natural look.
